Age UK Lewisham and Southwark has, for the past year, worked to establish a focus on the dignity and wellbeing of older people living in both residential and own home settings.

The Homecare Quality Check project focuses on local authority (Lewisham and Southwark) contracted home care for older people aged 55+. Formerly known as ‘Carewatch’, the project relies on a mixture of paid and volunteer staff to achieve its dual aims of checking:

  • how homecare services contracted by Lewisham and Southwark Councils are impacting on older peoples’ quality of life
  • care workers’ quality of employment
